As societies grow and evolve, loss amidst the change is bound to happen. New buildings are put up and greenery may be replaced by concrete foliage. This is precisely the case in China, where cities spread to suburban-branches throughout the country, effacing any trace of the once agricultural economy, replaced instead with shallow morals and superficial ambitions. This oil painting on canvas, a new creative pursuit adopted by the Liu Dao Art Collective, reminisces on the artists’ long-lost hometowns, villages that have been spared the economic surcharge of the last 20 years and still remain under the wings of long-gone ideals carried in little red books.
